Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Farewell Luke Jackson

Of course you would of, pretty easy to say when you are not in the job.

I suggest your reply should have said 'would have', 'not would of'.  Just the same, how good is it to be on Demonland with such gracious people, who clearly have no idea about opinions and cannot allow someone having an alteranate opinion, without having a chip back.

Excuse me Dry as a Dale, but my opinion is my own.  I did not try to impose it on anyone else.  However, clearly, you've made your own choice to respond.

Why do I persist being here?  I'll get back to ya.

Go you mighty Demons.

Thanks for the english lesson. If you can't take criticism of your opinion then maybe keep it to yourself,  but that is only my opinion.

Not an English lesson, just correct English.  I'll espouse my opinion at all times. in line with the topic.  But I will never be a smart [censored], with someone who can articulate their alternate opinion, with grace.

Has there been any sort of statement yet from Jackson? Thanks MFC for giving me the opportunity, thanks to the members/fans... etc etc etc?

Disclaimer... I haven't read the whole thread & am currently overseas so don't get all the news, so apologies if already discussed.

I just want to say that i was played out of position by Mr Williamson in grade 6. He had me at CHF when i was clearly a ruck- rover type player. I have never forgotten that.

You have kind of missed what I thought was really obvious but as it seems you have the IQ of Dogga I will explain. 

Even if you are pee'd off and feeling undervalued by MFC your PROFESSIONAL commitment means you play the game,tick the public boxes and move on....unlike players who think " professional "means it's only money and self interest. 

No one is contesting self interest..just how you live with it in a professional manner.

Kind of. If you look at Grundys thanks to the Pies as comparison,  you will be left disappointed. Speaks a lot about his manager too.

I have not idea what any of that means. It’s a grammatical nightmare, littered with expression issues

OK I apologise.

1 Hunt currently feels hard done by and I have  personal information to support that's how he feels.

2 He accepts the decision as the lot of  professional athlete.

3.His reasons are listed

4 Nonetheless he makes respectful public comments as a professional athlete should.

5 I imply that currently the balance between rights and obligations in the AFL arena is skewed towards rights

6 Which is not an attractive ( classy) state of affairs.

7 I  hope that's now  clear and you are  intelligent enough ( from your critique) to understand this was a post about  "professionalism"in the AFL as much as the subject of the thread.

8 But I doubt it

 So you and Mr Williamson are double-teaming me? Luke couldn't be that dumb he gets his kicks playing AFL football and putting money in the bank, not posting aggrieved commentary on footy websites.

I had a read of the Freo Bigfooty thread on Jacko.

Interestingly there are lots of references to JVR, and how much they seem to rate him and hope that he similarly goes back to WA. 

Think it's mostly because he's a key forward from WA who was a huge dockers supporter. There were rumours of him being a flight risk when he was drafted.

From his reaction to him drafted to us on draft night it didn't look like he was a flight risk.

Oh

Good

Next 300 pager coming up

We should assume any SA or WA player is a flight risk!.  Especially if they are high end draftees who show some success in their first few years.

Their recruiters get closer to their managers. schools, families and junior clubs long before being drafted.  The player will have barracked for one of the two teams. 

'Going home' of top end talent is happening quite frequently now.  New draftees see how easy it is, be they in or out of contract, to 'go home'.  So  I would expect the 'go home' players will increase further from now on.

That is not to say we shouldn't draft them.  But:  Caveat emptor!

Most 1st round draftees sign a new contract early when they join a club and usually for at least two years.

He would be a high priority for early re-signing (along with Kozzie) so let's see what JVR does.  If he defers talks or signs for just one year as Jackson did the jungle drums will start beating!  Loudly!!

One of the SA clubs said that GC shouldn't bother recruiting Rankine because he would only come back to SA at the first opportunity, I think they said the same of Lukosius. So eastern states clubs recruit them and SA/WA clubs grab them for a very poor return.

Over the main Covid period it wasn't pleasant for anyone living in Victoria, maybe with the "State of Emergency" nearly over things will change. Maybe we can start to attract a few Victorians playing with WA/SA clubs to come back here.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
